NEXT SCHOOL COUNCIL & AURORA FUNDRAISING SOCIETY MEETING:

June 2, 2021 (Virtual)

6:00pm 

SCHOOL COUNCIL

All parents of Aurora School are automatically members of School Council.

As a member of School Council you have the privilege to contribute to the education of students in your school.

Education is a partnership involving parents, students, teachers, principals, school boards, government, and the community.

Your involvement in the council gives you the opportunity to strengthen that partnership and to be part of a dedicated team working to ensure a high quality of education and an accountable education system.

Your participation makes a difference.
